Hitler Lives at the University of California
Recently a survey at the U of
California at Berkley asked students at random to comment on the ISIS barbarians
who decapitate people in Syria and Iraq.
The same students were also asked
to comment on Israel. Most students at U of C favored ISIS and denounced Israel.
This is not surprising. It happened before during the 1920’s and
The first followers of the Nazi
movement in Germany were students and professors at the German universities, who
enthusiastically supported the high school dropout Hitler for the ten years from
1923-1933 when he campaigned for the overthrow of the German republic and the
murder of Jews. During those ten
years, German students and professors attacked Jewish students at the
universities both verbally and physically, as professors praised Hitler in the
classrooms and denounced Jews. German students refused to take classes taught by
Jewish professors and fraternities threatened violence against Jewish students.
All this before the Nazi takeover.
Race theories were taught at
German universities and after Hitler became dictator the German academics were
the first to swear allegiance to the Nazi cause and to write commentaries on the
racial laws. Professors at once kicked all Jews out of the universities even as
the “famous” philosopher Martin Heidegger wore an SS black uniform as
president of the University of Munich.
In the United States, the major
universities also became great friends of Nazis and their ideology. American
universities in the 1930’s sent students to study in Germany and absorb Nazi
views. They welcomed Nazi exchange students to Harvard, Yale, and Princeton and
other colleges, while the president of
Harvard sailed to Germany on a ship bearing the Nazi flag. There he accepted
awards from Nazi dignitaries.
When a few German Jewish
professors were able to come to the United States
after being fired by the Nazi bosses, numerous American universities
refused to appoint them, even when the Rockefeller Foundation was willing to pay
one half their salaries. Yale University president James Angell and Harvard
president James Conant were eager to host Nazi professor Friedrich Schoenemann,
who lectured on “Why I believe in the Hitler government.” The Harvard law
school dean Roscoe Pound attended anti-Jewish events and history professor
William Lang defended Hitler. Nazi official Hanfstengel was commencement speaker
at Harvard in 1934. His speech was “Why the Jews must be crushed.” The
Harvard student paper “The Crimson” defended Nazi atrocities. MIT also
participated in pro-Nazi activities and went so far as to sing Nazi songs at
commencements. These sentiments were also present at most American universities,
although receiving less publicity than those at Ivy League schools.
Today we see the same phenomenon
again. Now professors from California to New York preach hate of Jews in the
classroom as students smear swastikas on the doors of Jewish inhabited dormitory
doors. Arab hate merchants are invited to rant their poison at numerous campuses
here and in Canada, while Jewish speakers are shouted down by choruses of
assembled bigots. On a number of occasions, Jewish students have been assaulted
at California colleges while administrators
do nothing to prevent the violence.
Now, as then, our universities are
the most supportive of anti-Jewish propaganda, as demonstrated by the Modern
Language Association and other so called academic organizations who expelled all
Jews from membership as they rant Hitler’s message today. These haters were
born too late. Had they been around in the 1940’s, they too could have worked
the gas ovens and made money stealing from the dead Jews. Hitler lives.
